[ inaudible ]. i am the worst jurmist in the world. for god's sake the title of her book was "all in." she might as well -- >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. we begin with the broadening and complicated scope of the petraeus investigation that has now ensnared his successor, commander of all forces in a
social security. of course he didn't. i had assembled more people that hated john kerry than john kerry assembled that hated george bush. that doesn't lead to a man date for governance. that's a mandate for gridlock which is exactly what we got. >> mr. tyler, how do you explain karl rove's power within republican circles? are people simply stupid? are they prepared to part with their money because he's a persuasive salesman? >> no, a lot of people that give to karl rove are very smart people, they're entrepreneurs and they do great work. i'm hearing from them now. and karl rove is ver persuasive. when you talk to him, he knows his stuff but he didn't know his stuff here. what it gets down to, martin, you had 14 million people who didn't show up in 2012 -- that turned out in 2008. you have to reduction of 14 million voters. that's very significant. that tells me this was not a national campaign, that it was a tactical campaign. therefore, the battleground states mattered. voter contact mattered. we lost every single one of the battleground states, and it turns out -- and i think it's act
this problem. >> i want to ask you about susan rice or john kerry for secretary of state. do you have a preference? do you think one would be an easier confirmation than the other? >> i think they both have incredible depth of knowledge and capability in that position and i'm waiting to hear what the president has to say to us. >> you don't believe there is a confirmation issue with susan ri rice? >> i think susan rice has done an incredible job for our country. she has a right if she is nominated to come before the senate and make her case, and i hope that no one draws lines in the sand until she has that opportunity if she's nominated. >> all right. senator patty murray, who is chairwoman of the dnc. i understand you don't want to do that job again. >> i have other responsibilities, yes. >> we will wait to see who comes next. senator murray, thanks for coming on this morning. >> thank you. >>> and we have some breaking news that we let you know of during the bottom banner, but house minority leader nancy pelosi is once again going to run for leader. again the official announcement i
reported friday, one of the candidates for panetta's job, when he does go, is actually senator john kerry who is being considered for defense essentially as a consolation prize if he does not get the state department job which is what he truly covets because the assumption right now is, and there's a lot of support for her inside the white house, the president will nominate susan rice to succeed hillary clinton instead. but if rice does get nominated she could have a pretty big confirmation battle on her hands. many republicans, including a guy like south carolina senator lindsey graham who normally ends up confirming a lot of the president's appointments, did in the first term, is promising a brutal confirmation pick if rice is picked. >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi debacle. i'm not going to promote somebody i think has misled the country or is incompetent. that's my view of susan rice. there are other people out there. i don't want to fight with the president over something like this, but there has to be an accountability. you just
and what exactly that information was. >> reporter: massachusetts senator john kerry, the chair of the foreign relations committee, has also expressed interest in the secretary of state job but today sources said he might be considered for secretary of defense instead if leon panetta leaves. and john brennan, the president's top counterterrorism advisor, has emerged as a leading candidate to fill the role unexpectedly vacated by david petraeus as director of the c.i.a. the news about susan rice's standing had all the feel of a trial balloon today, scott, as white house officials try to determine just how entrenched this republican opposition is and how difficult the confirmation process would be. >> pelley: nancy, thank you. an army prosecutor says that staff sergeant robert bales should be tried and executed for the massacre of 16 civilians in afghanistan. a preliminary hearing wrapped up today at joint base lewis- mcchord in washington state and john blackstone is there. >> reporter: sergeant bales, the prosecutor said, committed crimes that were heinous, brutal and methodical
senator john kerry who is very familiar with senator kerry actually played mitt romney in his debate prep. so they spent a lot of quality time together recently. the thing is everyone has known that senator kerry had an eye on the role of being the secretary of state to replace hillary clinton. his name was mentioned back in 2008 for that role as president obama considered who to put in for the cabinet. i think right now some of the conventional wisdom says that u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice even though she's embattled over her comments on benghazi, she may be the favorite for that role. so you've got some trial balloons floating around here. we know there are a couple deputies to the secretary of defense who are also being considered for the role. we'll have to wait and see exactly how it plays out. >> all right, brianna keilar, you have a full plate. >> yes. >> thank you very much. >> next hour we'll get reaction to general allen now being tangled in this scandal. nic paton walsh will join us with perspective there. >> and tom fuentes from the fbi will join us to talk about all
. for secretary of state, john kerry not just because he won't be the part but because he has the depth of knowledge and capacity to deal with the gnarly problems out there. let's face it, the agenda isn't pretty. even after we're out of afghanistan and iraq, the middle east is a mess. the iran situation is a conundrum and china is omnipresent. for defense, colin powell among the wisest and thoughtful military leaders out there plain and simple. the ccny grad, too. dennis or gary. dennis has proven to his advocacy of better markets they've fully understands and actions that need to be brought and during his more than 15 years as a partner one of the nation's largest and finest law firms, he proved he knows the actual nuts and bolts of the lawyering that is used to mask what is going on. genser will has been a wonderful rice for reform from his perch at the cftc. proven where you come from is effective of how you think. >> joe, the other half of the krugman equation. his nobel and writings prove he, too, is one of the few
charges. >> senator john kerry will be nominated to president obama's cabinet but not as secretary of state. president obama may ask the vietnam veteran to replace leon panetta instead it is unlikely he will stay on for the full second term. as for the secretary of state position it is widely believed that the president will nominate susran rice. rice appeared on five different sunday talk show in the aftermath of the terrorist attack and blaming the anti-muslim video saying it was terror. >> republican congressman paul ryan breaking his silence a week after he and mitt romney lost the election wants to get to work. >> the issues we talked about sevenyears ago are what we have today. economy and debt-crisis and i worry about our military. these same problems exist and we have to find common ground to make it work. >> when asked about running on 2016. he said he was tired of presidential pilots right now. >> gas rationing in new jersey came to an end. the was put in place after gas shortages that had cars lined up for miles. governor christy said all supplies are replenished. darkne
democratic senator john kerry to serve as his next defense secretary. and that susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, would be his top pick to take over as secretary of state for outgoing hillary clinton. >> that means who would come in to replace him in the senate? >> that's the big problem right there. there would be a special election. a lot of people think that republican senator scott brown, outgoing republican senator would be the favorite. that's actually working against senator kerry's nomination for anything because you don't think that the democrats don't want to lose a seat potentially. >> that's what i was saying. >> the man who made sure our computers stay virus-free wanted for questioning in connection with a murder. this thing is a mess, too. john mcafee, of the popular anti-virus software, is in hiding after his neighbor was found shot to death in belize. police say they want to talk to mcafee but right now he is nowhere to be found. >>> republican congressman paul ryan says losing last week's election was quote, a foreign experience. but, in his f
with it. >> what about john kerry, rumored to replace panetta at the defense department. already calling the swift boat activity, saying he threw away his medals from vietnam, in no position to be defense secretary of the united states. >> senators look out for each other. and i think it will only be strategically possible to have one target, and susan rice is the natural target because the question is not just this question of was it or was it not terrorism. the administration put out a story about the role of the video that looks like it was covering itself after the fact, a story probably knew wasn't true or good reason to know it was not true. susan rice was the mouthpiece for that. that will be litigated over and over again. don't want a second distraction -- >> i heard he wanted to be secretary of state, not secretary of defense, but president is determined to make susan rice secretary of state, there's a fall back position, if you will. >> i think again, a solid nominee. swift boat stuff aside, frankly here is a guy didn't have to go over and fight for his country but strapped on
considering senator john kerry, who has long wanted to be secretary of state, for defense secretary. the white house has also lock wanted u.n. ambassador susan rice to success hillary clinton, but officials say congressional leaders are now warning them that the controversy over benghazi could complicate her confirmation, and counterterrorism adviser john brennan is still a possibility, if he wants it, to take over at cia. a lot going on here. savannah. >> complicated is the word of the day. amitch nell washington. thank you. let's turn to retired colonel jack jacobs who is an nbc military analyst. first petraeus, and now general allen involved. on the stunner scale, where do you put this? >> seven. very startling, especially for those people who worked with these officers and known for them for years and years. really quite astonishing. do you know general allen? what is his reputation? >> i don't know him very well. i've met him on several occasions. he's a 1976 honors graduate of the u.s. naval academy. he's got a -- a masters degree from georgetown, from the national war college. he's quit
the use of the web, and then john kerry carried it forward on sort of that aspect of it. but, boy, the bush campaign had it going. and then in 2008 where the mccain campaign had its up and then its down and then a little up and down, but the thing about it is whatever the state of the technology, the state of the art on republican presidential campaign organization efforts from '04 was lost in '08. and had to get effectively rebuilt, this time by the romney campaign. but only after they were able to get the republican nomination in april which was so late in part because of super pacs that basically kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. i mean, you know, historically as long as stu and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, their donors closed their checkbooks. you run out of money, you drop out of the race. and now with super pacs what's happening is, you know, sheldon edelson can keep gingrich going for a month or two more and prolong the process and foster frieze can do the same thing with santorum. so that
that happens in washington a lot. the other candidate, of course, would be senator john kerry. very likely candidate since he's involved very much in international affairs and yet susan rice seems to be -- that names seems to be rising to the top. >> as you mentioned, secretary's flexibility will allow the president to nominate nsomeone who may not get confirmed and go to plan b. the president just lost a safety director. he's going to lose secretary clinton. his afghan war general involved in a scandal. is this shaping the president's foreign policy, without him directing it? are there real effects to all of this, do you think, worldwide? >> at this point, no, i don't think that. and one of the reasons is that the foreign policy really, a lot of it comes directly from the white house. there is a lot of control by this administration over what the direction is. after all, the president is one who is in charge and secretary clinton certainly has been very much a part of creating some of that, and carrying it out. but i think you have to say that at this point to say that when she leaves or
pieces? senator john kerry, who chairs the senate foreign relations committee, has, it's been widely known, long wanted to be secretary of state. if susan rice gets the state nomination, he could be put up for secretary of defense. or not. he says he's right now focused on his job in the senate. another possibility is the president has said he would lake to have a bipartisan cabinet. defense is a good place to put a republican, a republican such as former senator chuck hagel, for example. that's just one name i've heard bandied about. or you could put that person at cia. although the talk is that john brennan, the current homeland security adviser, is the man who could get cia if he wants it. but there's no knowledge about whether or not he wants it. and if he doesn't take it, mike morrell, the current acting director is considered the shoo-in for that job, wolf. >> he's got a full treasury secretary as well. there's speculation that jack lew could get that position. jessica, there'll be a lot of shuffling going on over at the white house. thanks very much. >> thanks, wolf. >>> the d
